the center for accounting transformation’s public accounting advisory board met last quarter to discuss some of the biggest issues facing the public accounting industry.

the strongest themes revealed during the meeting is that there simply aren’t enough accountants to handle the growing workloads; innovation and automation must be implemented faster to streamline processes and free up accountants to increase advisory services; and time, as the scarcest of resources, is the primary commodity for any professional, but is especially true for accountants.

during the discussion, board members considered causes and possible solutions, which firms can use to guide several strategic decisions in 2022.
